I'm curious as to the required number of qubits necessary for quantum data storage.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, suppose we had the technology to teleport the quantum state vector of a human body into quantum storage. Would the storage device require as many qubits as there are particles in the human body, or exponentially more?

Second, what would be required to simulate such a system in motion? I assume it would require the same number of qubits, but this is where you would need to introduce quantum logic gates. How many quantum logic gates would be necessary? What qualifies as a quantum logic gate to begin with?

I'm asking in the case of a human being simply because I'm writing sci fi, but the question holds the same for more likely scenarios such as simulating how proteins fold and so on.
